The unique set of pictures was taken by local photographer Andrew Whyte who began taking shots of the Lego man in August last year when he wanted to add a common theme to the snaps he was taking.

Since then he has captured the figure in a range of weather conditions and at various locations around the historic city, famed for its Navy base and as being the birthplace of Charles Dickens.

Andrew, 38, said: 'The project isn't about the Lego, it's about the character.

'I used to walk around all the time taking photographs of random things like sunsets, textures, locations, but they had no connection.

'To capture those moments is great, but they had no theme. By following the lego figure day to day it makes the photographs easier to follow.

Since the turn of the year, Andrew has taken 150 images as he seeks to complete a year long project charting 2013 through from the perspective of his little Lego subject.

Far from employing the latest in photographic technology, Andrew takes all of the images using his mobile phone.

Andrew added: 'I enjoy the challenge of doing it all on my phone.

'Sometimes the weather can be really difficult. If there's the slightest wind I feel just as frustrated as the little guy would if he could feel falling over.

'I call him either "the little guy" or "the legographer". I think giving him a real name would be going a step too far.
